Poet Tino Villanueva ( American Book Award) invited me for dinner at the Union Oyster House in Boston. We talked about a number of things, like Lorca's time in New York City--and Lorca's experience in a synagogue while in the city. We touched a bit on the history of Sephardic Jews, and  Tino's work channeling the voices of the dead in a Sephardic Jewish cemetery.  We also chatted about Tino's latest project--his 'flaneur' poems.  Excellent scrod, oysters and beer-- a great evening indeed!

22 years ago I was working at McLean Hospital on Bowditch Hall. I saw a framed poem "Waking in the Blue" signed by Robert Lowell. It was a great poem about Lowell's hospitalization at McLean--he was often in and out. I sent the poem and my small intro to Robert Pinsky, and he published them in American's Favorite Poems anthology. I have taught the poem many times to my creative writing students, and in poetry groups that I ran at the hospital for more than 30 years...
